I'm not that keen on H'aanit because of that dialogue either. The game is wordy enough as it is, the last thing I want is to read more overly long exposition in some broken form of Middle English. I can only assume that Olberic is intended to be a bit of a joke on the whole traditional knight class, he's just too over the top not to be.

My main party is Therion, Cyrus, Olberic and Primrose with the missing classes specced as secondaries where they seem to fit best. I kind of wish I could use them all though as there isn't really an unlikable one among the whole cast.

Warioware is fantastic! Been loving every minute playing through it with the wee man. It's full of great little touches.

Diablo 3 confirmed for Switch, aiming for a release towards the end of the year. It will include all the content currently available, will allow four player single console co-op and LAN play, as well as online play.

Ah yes, the game they accidentally announced 6 months ago and then withdrew again when they realised their audience aren't idiots.

Good stuff. Everyone should own Terraria, though I think the PC version is still superior.

While Nintendo have an excellent range of indie titles, they need to work on their store interface. It's still in the practically bare-bones state it launched in 18 months ago, and there are close to a thousand titles available on it now. There's no sort of ranking system outside of a store-wide best sellers list. It desperately needs at least a basic player-ranked rating system.

They have said they are looking at this in a previous Direct, so they at least know it is an issue. But yes they need to do something asap.

Agreed, the store is actually awful. Essentially if a game isn't on sale or already in the top ranked titles you will never find something unless you already know exactly what you're looking for. It's a real pain when you hear about a game but then when it comes to finding it on the store you can't remember its name.

I tend to just use the website to search, which isn't exactly ideal.

That was the last decent game in the franchise before it went a bit too whacky. It still wasn't anywhere near as good as the second one mind you.
